Robert Greene's Mastery completely shatters the myth that iconic people were destined for success by birth or some wild genius feat. Many of the great masters had an unremarkable upbringing. Some, like Marcel Proust, turned their waste of time itself into mastery. The primary difference between masters and ordinary people is that the masters never gave up on their craft and took as long as it was necessary to perfect it. Mozart may have been a child prodigy, but it took him almost a decade to write a composition of value. After 10 years of pondering, Einstein's theory of relativity came to him in a flash minutes after he completely disregarded any solution. This is such a great opportunity to have a closer look at what made the likes of Mozart, Leonardo da Vinci and others into forces of nature that they were in their time and beyond.
Robert Greene's Mastery teaches you how to overcome one of the biggest obstacles we face. The obstacle that holds us back the most. The obstacle of ourselves.
